    Default Has anyone used Bondic?

    Not much info on their website, even though commercials pop up on Youtube. Sure seems that it would be a godsend for the tabs on the side covers. I've had little to no luck with plastic welding. I even used the ABS rods for the side covers.

    Ive used it, it doesnt chemically bond with the base material, just a mechanical bond. Neato, with the uv cure and all, but i used it once or twice, both applications failed, and I have yet to use it again. Fwiw. Have you used the 2 part "plastic welder" epoxy? Imo, that works better than anything else i've tried, melts and blends with the base material.

    I hadn't heard of plastic welder epoxy. I'll look for it. My cousin, who is service manager at a H-D dealer, swears by the baking soda/super glue mix. I'd think he'd know whether it would hold or not on vibrating Harleys, lol. I personally am not sure of it. I'd rather try the epoxy.

    I've used it. I've also done some work with those guys (they are Canadians) but I won't comment on that.... It comes from a dentistry process. It's most useful when you don't need high strength & you need to place really accurately, fill a shape & cure instantly. Works well on transparent.

    For the tabs on the side covers it would not be a good choice in my opinion.

    yep, it would be good for tacking something so you could glue it for real

    Iíve used 2part plastic epoxy and cloth with success.... itís not a pretty fix, but holds the tabs on pretty good. I reinforced a couple tabs before they broke on ones that seem flimsy. New grommets that arenít so hard help preserve the tabs too.
    Scuff and clean with acetone before you repair it. The acetone will soften the ABS and provides a little chemical bond; but I think itís mostly physical.
